What services does OpCOURAGE offer?

Op COURAGE Midlands is a partnership of eight specialist organisations that provide an integrated service across the whole Midlands region. 

Through your journey with the service your care and support could come from one, or several parts of the partnership. You will always have one person responsible for overseeing your care, and all the organisations work together as a team to ensure the best outcomes for you and your family. 

The first stage of your journey is a referral supported by Mental Health Matters who provide our referral and support lines. 

From there, your assessment, care planning and treatment will take place within our pathways provided by:

  • Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
  • Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust
  • Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust
  • St Andrew's Healthcare

Depending on what you need you could be offered a range of specialist support and treatment, tailored to your needs. 

This includes:

  • Helping you to recognise and treat early signs of mental health problems, as well as more advanced mental health conditions and psychological trauma.
  • Providing support and treatment for substance misuse and addictions.
  • Liaising with charities and local organisations to support your wider health and wellbeing, such as help with housing, relationships, finances and employment. 
  • Referring you to other NHS services, where needed.
  • Recognising that your family may also need help and care and supporting them to access this.
